I found this article particularly useful so I thought I'd share it with you. It really describes a lot of what I experience, particularly the adrenaline surge masking the pain and then being in excruciating pain when I rest. Clearly I'm doing too much but with young kids it's soooooo difficult to stop!! http://www.hfme.org/adrenalinesurgetips.htm Any thoughts? P.S. For those of you who are not well enough to read a long text, the article is not as long as it seems because there are lots of links at the bottom. Also, about two-thirds of the way down, there's a summary of the article.
